's affordable health care act, commonly known as obama care. most of us have no idea what it means or how it will affect us and our families. here to offer her take on this system, is board certified anesthesiologist and member of the association of american physicians and surgeons, dr. marilyn singleton. welcome, dr. singleton. >> hi, good to see you. >> thank you for being with us. now, obama care is complex. everyone is trying to figure out what does it mean, how will it impact us. as a physician, of course, you have your point of view, sort of from the inside. what would you say to most of us lay people from your vantage point? >> i would say that there are some great things about the new healthcare law. everyone knew that healthcare to to be reformed. one of the big issues is addressing healthcare costs versus how we deal with our medical care. they two different things. the good things are allowing the children to stay on your plan until they're 26 and -- >> my kids would love that. thank you. >> and they don't stay at home. my daughter's like how am i going to have health insurance
. pilgrims will retrace jesus' steps. >>> back here at home new warnings over president obama's health care law three years after it was signed into law by the president. the government right now is struggling to meet its own deadlines, even as the law's most critical provisions are set to kick in. experts predicting it may not go so smoothly. joining me now, bob cusack, managing editor of "the hill." good morning. let's talk about the hurdles that are ahead. how much is the president facing in getting the health care mandate, especially for the states, in place? >> well, the stakes here are enormous. this is going to be president obama's legacy, whether it's good or bad. the fact that obama care has actually survived to make it this long is surprising. of course, survived the supreme court challenge and the 2012 election. but implementing is going to be tricky. there are a lot of issues. immigration reform is one issue. will immigrants who get their green card be allowed on the rolls of health care. also, employers struggling to find out what is the minimum threshold, what do they have to
that their taxes have gone up. way up in some cases. and obama care which was supposed to save them $2,500 a year is busting their budgets as the cost of their healthcare is soaring. ultraliberal comedian bill maher must have met with his accountant and gotten his tax bill. here is what he said. >> rich people i'm sure you would agree with this actually do pay the freight in the country. something like 70%. and here in california i just want to say liberals you could actually lose me. it is outrageous what we are paying. over 50%. i'm willing to pay my share but it is ridiculous. >> mike: like he realizes between the federal tax hike and california's highest income tax in the nation he is going to now be paying about 60% of his income in taxes. and democratic strategist donna brazil who i really respect and like noted that her health insurance was sharply higher than before obama care and she was shocked. donna said this. she said just got off the phone with my healthcare provider asking them to explain why my premium jumped up. no good answer. well, donna needs to watch my show more! because i h
back in 2010 saying famously that lawmakers had to pass obama care to find out what was in it. as portions of the law are being implemented many americans are surprised to find out just what the law does contain. the federalist society held a series of debates across the country giving both sides the chance to argue the constitutionality of the law and to poll the audience to find out o how much they understood about the law. kelly ann con way with a look at what the debates uncovered. what did you find that people did or didn't understand about the law? >> we were on 21 different college campuses over the last three semesters over 1208, roughly 1208 respondents. 87% of whom were actual law students. most were is surprised to find out that the affordable care act actually would not necessarily be affordable for everyone and might in fact according to some of debaters reduce the choice and the quality and maybe increase the cost for most americans. i have to say what fed talk was able to do here was remarkable. what we found was exposure to an alternative point of view in the d
to reconcile these two documents. the house budget would balance after ten years. repeal obama care. no tax increases. the senate budget doesn't get to balance after ten years, it includes $1 trillion of tax increases, even some stimulus money to try to get the economy going. but it's significant that they're fighting at a lower level of intensity and turmoil. notice that the congress left for easter break without a crisis over a government shutdown. there was no crisis over potential debt limit, and government default earlier this year. could come back this summer but so long as it lasts, that's calming for the markets and good for the economy, and it may, lester, leave some space still for a compromise in which democrats would agree to changes in cuts in medicare and social security, and republicans would come up with a little bit more tax revenue, lester. >> all right, john harwood tonight, thank you. >>> president obama wrapped up his four-day visit to the middle east today, after helping israel and turkey end a three-year diplomatic dispute. that, in turn, will help the region deal wit
these one size fits all solutions don't work. that's what we've seen with obama care and a lot of things. this is for one college and should be emulated if possible because it's working there. >> yes. and other schools can come up with other ways to do t same thing. one of the things as john touched on with the government subsidies it's bloated administrative costs which is why the sticker price for tuition is going up at four times the rate of inflation. that's got to be stopped. this is one way. bless them. you'll see more of this in the future, three years insteadf four years and more on line. the bloat is going one way or the other. >> isn't this better than another taxpayer bailout? >> i say no, don't cut off tuition lending, there isn't enough money in the system to make every dollar of financial aid take the form of a grant. it can't work that way. die like steve's idea that incentives should be realigned. i would like to see every college co-sign any dollar of any loan from the federal taxpayer. >> good luck on that. morgan, is this a good idea? >> i do. i think it's innovative.

to cut a part of obama care, are cut out of it the part that required employers to cover basic maternity care because it made everyone's insurance more expensive. >> i don't need maternity care and so requiring that to be in my insurance policy is something that i don't need and will make the policy more expensive. >> that's big thinking. anyway, a colleague of his later pointed out kyl's mother likely needed such services at one point. then there was the fiasco over aide for states affected by hurricane sandy. 67 house republicans voted against providing flood insurance against sandy victims. 37 of them have a history of supporting aid after natural disasters when their own states were affected. missouri congressman sam graves was one of them. but here is what he said in 2011 when his state was dealing with a severe flood damage. quote, i urge the president to a approve this assistance without delay. many communities along the river have been stretched to the limit preparing for and fighting this unprecedented flood. finally, oklahoma senator jim inhofe in 2006 had this to say during a
majority of our debt problems relate to the costs of health care in america. now that the debate over obama care is over, we should start thinking about how to get america's health care costs under control. as it turns out, two new works, a book and a magazine cover story provide some very useful ways to think about it. the central debate between democrats and republicans is over whether the free market works well in health care. in a new book, catastrophic care, david goldhill makes the case for the market arguing that people need to become consumers of health care so that they, not insurance companies, not the government, actually see, feel and pay the bills. that will force producers of health care, doctors and hospitals, to push down prices and drive up quality. that's what happens with groceries and television sets and computers. lasiks surgery which is not covered by health insurance, has seen a 90% drop in price and increase in quality since it was introduced in the 1990s. that's what happens when consumers pay for a product. makes an opposite case in a recent cover story in "time" m
of our problem is related to the cost of health care in america. now the debate over obama care is over, we should start to think seriously of how to get america's health care costs under control. as it turns out a book and magazine story provide ways to think of this. the central debate between republicans and democrats is over whether the free market works well in health care. in a new book catastrophic care, they make the case arguing people need ito become consumers of health care so they, not insurance companies or the government, actually see, feel and pay the bill. that will force producers of health care, doctors and hospitals to push down prices and drive up quality. that's what happens with groceries, tv sets or computers. and basic surgery has seen a 90% drop in price and increase in quality since it was introduced in the '90s. that's what happens when consumers pay for a product. steven makes the opposite case in a recover story in "time" magazine. he painstakingly went through the actual bills that hospitals put out and found they charge massively for routine procedures and
them going. also, there is obama care, which each day is being followed by some newspaper story saying, there's a new part of it that the senate decided they had to vote out. there's a new part that's going to cost you $1,000 a year. all of this comes together and i think, has a somewhat damaging impact. >> all of the items on his agenda pass. i do want to move another one, there was a significant action this week on guns. we saw harry reid saying that he wasn't going to include the assault weapons ban in his base package on gun control. it turned on this issue of background checks, overnight, we saw mayor bloomberg of new york starting a $12 million ad campaign to target swing senators. >> to me, guns are for hunting and protecting my family. i believe in the second amendment and i'll fight to protect it. but with rights come responsibilities. that's why i support comprehensive background checks, so criminals and dangerously mentally ill can't buy guns. that protects my rights and my family. >> jim messina, a lot of resistance from democrats including senator reid. you saw mayor bloom
sin 2009. >> let's break it down. there was no new taxes, it would curb spending by repealing obama care and eliminate the deficit in ten years. total cuts, $4.6 trillion, and given it has zero chance of passing in the democratic-controlled senate, it's dedz on arrival. >> lawmakers in the house and senate approved legislation to fund the government through the end of september. that avoids the risk of a partial federal shutdown. in the process, they are on spring break for a couple weeks. what's your take on this? >> my take is the whole financial dysfunction of our congress is mind blowing. you look at this week. let's say frederick, maryland, where there's air traffic control that will be shut. a tower that was built and refurbished by the stimulus money. so stimulus money went into this tower. the government saying it's a priority. and the the government because of its dysfunction saying we have to shut is down. that's a perfect representation, i think, of how washington is not doing its job. we can't even pass a budget. it can't even run the books. there's no strategy. when you
lieutenant do -- will do in a case like this, based on obama care. what can's we glean from what e from that case and apply? >> a lesson we should have learned long ago, obamacare, actually. the court is not monolithic body we can sort of forecast across different votes. we shouldn't assume this is going to be a monolithic partisan 5-4. i woulds surprised if they came down at partisan conservative liberal 5-4s. >> thank you all so much. do appreciate your time. we'll have to get you back. >> thanks. >> thanks for having us. >>> coming up, it took merely 100 pages for republicans to assess how the party lost 2012. our war room, on whether the autopsy was actually long enough. >>> this day 55 years ago was a dark one for elvis fans. we'll tell you why, next.

to president obama on the affordable care act, syria's bill plante. thank you mr. president. anybody on capitol hill will say that there is no chance that the american jobs act in its current state passes either house. you have been out on the campaign trail baying away to pass this bill. it begins to look like you're campaigning and following the harry truman model against the do-nothing congress instead of negotiating. are you negotiating? >> what is true is they need to do something. the question then is will congress do something? if congress does something i cannot run against a do-nothing congres. if a congress does nothing than it is not a matter of me running against them, the american people or run them out of town. host: did he answer your question? guest: and no, he turned to his advantage. was is therereally any point in continuing to talk about the american jobs act if in fact it is not going to pass, which everyone agrees it would not. this is a campaign ploy. he turned it around and made the same argument that he is making on the trail, saying that if they would do something that

is that the republican party doesn't care enough about people and we have to change that. >> so, when conservatives last year said that not only the reporting was unfair. too unfair to barack obama, and also that the polls were spewed in all that, you know, the counter to that was, republicans were out of touch and now come to the support saying, hey, republicans were out of touch. do you feel vindicated? >> not vindicated. but even more, as significant as the policies. the report is also critical of things that were wrong with the romney campaign technologically. >> i don't want to talk about that. >> i just want to point out that is a criticism of the media that is also reflected in this report. not vindicated, howie, but the report is right on. the real question is looking forward, will republicans follow the recommendations in the report? >> is it possible for republicans to ever sort of win favorable coverage, except by being more like democrats? >> on that point, the subject of gay marriage, polls moving in the direction of favoring gay marriage on younger people. when hillary clinton comes out an
